Hello. I just started raising chickens. And i got three new ones. And this chicken looked really red in the face and it looks like evrything is grown out. So i was wondering how much longer and how old she is. Thanks for the help. Its the buff colored one!
When to expect?
If she is at the point of lay it could take her several weeks to several months to adjust to her new environment or she could start laying tomorrow, there really is no telling with chickens! I once got 2 chickens for free because they weren't laying and once I got them home they started laying 2 days later! So you never really know. I would look for squatting, that would be a good indication that she is ready to lay.
